Chelimo races to GNAC weekly honor
Chelimo, from Kapkoi, Kenya, won the men’s steeplechase with a time of eight minutes, 56.37 seconds at the Occidental Distance Carnival (Eagle Rock, Calif.), just .37 seconds away from the automatic qualifying time.
Collecting the women’s weekly accolade was Western Oregon’s Amanda Schumaker, who automatically qualified for the NCAAs in the javelin. Chelimo joins senior Hallidie Wilt and freshman Cody Parker, who have each received the GNAC honor this season.
The Seawolves will have this weekend off to prepare for the annual Willamette Invitational on March 30-31.
